Why the most expensive cars are the easiest to steal

by Marc Weber Tobias

Theft of expensive vehicles by sophisticated car thieves is a big business, especially in Europe. Many of the cars are never recovered and often sold to fund organized crime. That's created a brisk market for the tools to pull off thefts of BMW 7-Series and Mercedes-Benz S Class sedans.

The break-in equipment that's legitimately sold to locksmiths and car garages (as well as police and intelligence agencies to search and plant bugs and tracking devices) often find their way to crooks. These include lock picks, decoders, keyless entry bypass systems, and readers to extract key profile information from the computers that control access security within the vehicles.
